What was also a larger disappointed to me was some of the execution on the drills. For example, a drill many of you do which they refer to as "shots across the lane", has the passers foul line extended on one side of the court, the shooters foul line extended on the other side. Your shooter, hands ready, sprints to the ball, turns, squares up, shoots. When we do this drill I emphasize the proper foot work (the inside pivot foot - constantly saying "right foot down, left foot around" when the players come in from the right facing the basket. "left down (pivot) , right foot around" for the opposite side of the court). It makes a player so much more dangerous and fundamentally sound if they know to square up with the inside foot as the pivot foot and if they can use either foot as a pivot foot. When they do this drill in the video the footwork is terrible and never mentioned or corrected. Also, on another shooting drill where the ball is passed to a player and you run at the shooter, it mentions boxing out but the execution is not there. Oh the passing player may get there on time, and may turn, but there is no box out. In "rotation box" the purpose of the drill IS to teach boxing out, but some of the players doing the drill are not even making contact with the body they are boxing out. How do you box out without contact? I am always looking for good boxing out drills, but again, emphasize the fundamentals. See the player you are boxing out, pivot, elbows back etc. And it is not just the footwork. Dribbling drills with the head down. Shooting without the follow through. Little pet peeves of every varsity coach.
It is not all bad news. A nice feature is that the video does indeed live up to the name and give you 48 drills (not sure about the championship part). They even include sample practice schedules (2 for a 2 hour junior high or high school practice and 2 one hour youth league practices).
So if you are a youth league coach or just starting out, this may well be a video for you to build your video library. But if you have been coaching for many years this is NOT for you. As for me, I'll pass it on to my freshmen coach with mention of my concerns. Hope this is of some help to readers.
Brought back a lot of memories and I've already incorporated a number of drills for into our practices. There are a number of drills the kids can do at home as well.
are not run correctly, your team and season are doomed. If you look
at the all time high school and college coaches, Morgan Wooten, Bob Hurley,
Bobby Knight or Coach K, each of these coaches break down each
practice by the minute and get as many players involved in every drill.
48 CHAMPIONSHIP BASKETBALL DRILLS is an excellent resource to have and
to keep referring to over the course of the season. I used this program
with my son's travel team and even my daughter's recreational team (with some adjustments).
The video scores big with the drills but some of the techniques are only average.
With this said, this program has to be in your resource library if you
are a basketball coach at the recreational, travel or school level.
Totally professionally done with excellent narration and very well paced.
